goeover 90 percent growth falls by 1%. you sacrifice gdp growth trying to up to people who love tax revenue. you will get less tax renue when the economy is smaller. this is something that the market understands. they want to see the economy grow. less in the future is better for the economy and markets. neil: that would mean no that if we are continuing on this trend, everything that the markets are celebrating right now, slobby sequestration, whenever you want to call it could be short-lived and there could be problems. what do you see happening? >> well, i think rand paul messages effective not only for the markets, but for the economy and the country at large because he is making a connection between economic liberty and prosperity. he understands that does look to the 20th-ctury. always the most prosperous countries are always the most free. and the message of essentially constitutionality, individual rights, that is tremendously bullish for the market. bullish for the economy. hitting t nail on the head. the fact that everything investors are seeing that we had a sequestered.
, was reportedly looking at real estate opportunities on the island. a new law would eliminate taxes on gains from the $9.5 billion he has invested in his own hedge funds. his fund released a statement last friday that indicates he has no plans to permanently relocate. survey says... mark zuckerberg is a top ceo. zuckerberg topped glassdoor.com's list of top ceos of 2013. ceos from sap, mckinsey & company, ernst & young and northwestern mutual rounded out the top five. meanwhile, tim cook slipped from the top spot last year to 18th. employees of the companies vote on their ceo, which means facebook employees really "like" their boss. ceo salaries are under scrutiny as recent filings reveal the earnings of the top brass. according to reports, john stumpf of wells fargo is the highest paid head of a major bank. on the heels of rising profits, his compensation package last year was nearly $23 million. in the automotive sector, ford ceo alan mulally took a pay cut but still made more than his peers at gm and chrysler with $21 million. and in a 25-year-long tradition, warren buffett still makes $100,00
: that companies from lost tax revenue because the economy is smaller? is that where you're getting the number from. >> yes. a mere 1% growth loss over time is huge impact on the economy and our ability to pay our bills. melissa: now you say this testimony is empirical. that is right in front of us and quantitative and not sub executive and people have to pay attention to that. that is not the case when you present it to the democrats and the president. they say cutting back on spending now would damage growth and the economy and cost us jobs in the short term. how do you respond to that? >> well, basically what the witnesses today said, for the most part, is that congress and the white house is making progress on discretionary spending, more can be done. but they really felt, the focus needs to be on how we make social security, medicare, medicaid, solvent over the long time. there was one other area of treatment. asked, given the obamacare taxes that have kicked in, the new taxes from the fiscal cliff, absent fundamental tax reform, would raising taxes again be helpful to our economy? no one agre
with spending and tax increases. on the other end of this how do you suggest that president obama somehow come and meet him in the middle? >> i'm not sure the budget is coming out of the house as much as any new revenues to solve the budget problems. by the way, i think we could learn something from the vatican if you lock everybody in a room with 500-year-old plumbing, we might get a deal here. charles: you know what? i tell you what, i'm for it. i thiik that's the most bipartisan thing that will be said all day long. on the budget situation, you know, it's interesting because obviously the president has taken a different tact here recently going into the sequester deal and sort of went to the people to make his case and the country's not falling apart. sequestration might have been a ploy, if you will, to sort of put the g.o.p. in a box, but seems to be working against the president and might be changing the whole tenor of this debate. >> well, i think the issue on sequestration, i think the president did sort of overestimate the effects and what i'm seeing is that it's having serious effect
. the sequencing done right on this cut spending cuts and tax reform. things sound great and they're moving along now. but joe, as we talked about earlier, you're going to have reticent democrats. and even key congressional races who are going to slow down a bit and saying, look, i want immigration and guns dealt with, what are we doing about the economy and the budget, the debt, and tax reform? >> and this is, richard haas, you can only push people so far, i mean, not the republicans' best friend. this weekend said democrats you're about to lose me. i pay 40% federal, 15%. well, i hear we have it cued up. let's go. this is bill maher this weekend. >> -- actually do pay the freight in this country. i just saw the statistics, something like 70%. and here in california, i'm just going to say, liberals, you could actually lose me. it's outrageous what we're paying. over -- i'm willing to pay my share, but yeah, it's ridiculous. >> and not only that -- >> wow. >> people like bill maher pay 55% in california, people in new york pay over 50%. in new jersey, why is a republican sitting at 70% plus appro
